Message from Mayor Kleem

It’s great to see so many families having fun at the new Mucklo Playground and at the huge playground just completed at the Parknoll School site. The new McKelvey Park is almost finished and absolutely beautiful.  Construction is getting under way on phase one of our upgrades to the Coe Lake area.

However, whenever park projects are discussed, inevitably some people say, “That money should be spent on my roads,” or “The City spends nothing on sewer problems.”

Well, the truth is roads, water and sewer projects are the priorities. However, we need to balance that with a little spent on park projects that make the community fun for residents and attractive for visitors.

Here is what we’ve spent on infrastructure and parks since I took office in 2008.

$13,677,259 on water/sewer (46.9 percent)
$12,627,310 on roads (43.2 percent)
$2,883,000 on parks (9.9 percent)

These numbers do not include non-infrastructure capital expenditures, such as police and fire equipment. Furthermore, of the nearly $2.9 million spent on parks, about $1.9 million is from this year. So, as you can see, the City’s priorities are in place, and we are spending your tax dollars in a balanced way.
